Located just 11/2 blocks from the heart of Michigan Ave. Small but adequate bar in the lobby. Some food available at the bar and through room service. You will need...

Would stay here again in a heart beat. Staff was pleasant enough (though I wouldn't say friendly), and the place was just flat out great. The location was also good, and still managed to be pretty quiet. Overall, a great time!

From the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out, we had a fabulous stay at Ivy Boutique Hotel. The location was perfect, the hotel bar was quaint and the rooms were very comfortable. The concierge were extremely helpful with restaurant suggestions.

Great value, nice large rooms. Very much a boutique hotel so not a lot of amenities like a pool or restaurant. But it does not matter, the location is great in River North and there are lots of options for great dining within blocks.

This is a small, upscale boutique. Everything was wonderful. It was quiet, the king bed was comfortable, the blinds closed so the room was very dark for sleeping. The shower was amazing -plenty of hot water.

This isn't a 5 star like the Ritz or the Peninsula but, value wise, it is a great place to stay. The lobby is small and the bar never has more then a couple of people in it so if that's your scene don't stay here. The star of this hotel is the rooms; I stayed in the king suite...

I was looking forward to writing an unequivocally positive review. The location of this property could not be better, within easy walking distance of restaurants, Northwestern, great architectural landmarks, shopping, and even a Whole Foods for those of us who can only deal with so many long restaurant meals. They offer a free pass to a local gym. The rooms...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
